Meet Jesse in 1994 at Longbeach bike show, he didn't get a lot of respect from the guys there....ie Ron Simms, Paul Yaffe ( kinda grew up with Paul in Paridise Valley, Az he's a cool cat), they all thought he was a flake. I guess someone saw something in the guy, he has put some cash in his pockets! Its a dog eat dog world, and Jesse learned how to get to the top I guess. I doubt someone else decided too just make him into a bigshot, he had to do a little work to get there. Just my .02

I'm not gonna get on my soapbox and Jesse-bash... the guy has done well for himself and you can't knock him for being sucessful. My thing is that people refer to him as some kind of master mechanic/fabricator... he isn't. Hes an OK welder and shaper... as far as the mechanical stuff I wouldn't let him change my oil.

 

The guys real name isn't Jesse James... just a marketing gimmic... like most of the things about him. Hes great at marketing himself and making an image people will buy into. More power to him... :yellow_loser:

i agree 100% with dylan, the guy is GREAT at marketing himself but as far as his fab work and whole not....its a 20 ft. job. dont get me wrong i wish i could be 1/2 as successful as that man, but he (in my opinion) is a sell out, and all he is doing is marketing himself and not what he did...personally i dont like his bikes but the immage he created takes a lot of people back to the hell angles kinda biker and everyone has respect for that kinda guy and everyone wants to be like that.

 

just my .02
